Morning mist and Autumn colors

Filed under: Autumn — Tags: , — montucky @ 3:50 pm

Many of our trees are showing nice Autumn colors in the misty mornings, but the needles of the Western Larch are just beginning to turn gold.

  1. The changing of the season brings new perspective and look to the same scene and that is one of the reasons why we enjoy it. thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Ron. Yes, from season to season the landscape changes, especially in the fall. I hope all is well with you!

  3. What a scenic space for walking, Terry. The mist only adds to the atmosphere.

    • I love those mornings and fortunately there are many like it near home because the river is just below.

  5. That looks like the perfect autumn road to me! We were up by Cornville a coupe days ago. We were just a little too early for the colors. They were starting but certainly not peaking.

    • Some of the foliage is in full color now and the rest is turning quickly. The western Larch will soon predominate in the fall colors.

  6. They are beautiful. I’d say every bit as good as we have here.
    I like the mist too!

    • I think you have far more masses of color and those beautiful reds and oranges too. Most of the forest trees here are pines, firs and hemlock though which don’t change. It will be prettier later when the larch finishes turning.

  7. I remember your pictures of larches from other years. I may have mentioned to you that my sister lives in Larchmont, New York.

    • That gives an idea of what their forests would look like in that area.

  8. I can imagine a nice peaceful walk down that road surrounded by those lovely trees of color. So pretty! Our fall colors haven’t been that great here this year. And a big rain/wind storm has already knocked off a lot of leaves. 😦

    • The leaves are falling fast here too now. The forests are green though because over 90% of the trees are pine or fir. The black cottonwoods haven’t completely turned color yet though so there will be more color coming up.

  9. I like the mix of colors. The larches can be dramatic, especially mixed in with conifers, but this looks to me like a perfect autumn morning.

    We’re still predominately green, but some berries and late flowers are adding a little color. Tomorrow? A front’s projected, and next week there are going to be lows in the 50s. Last week, we hit about 63 for a low, and some people on their morning walks were bundled up in sweat pants and sweat shirts — with the occasional wool scarf. I don’t know if they were truly cold, or just trying to push the season a bit!

  11. Hi Montucky, I sure miss the spectacular fall color display of the hardwood forests. We get a little of that here in FL but it is mostly in the Northern part. Your photos are just devine! Have a great day.

  15. So beautiful photos. Colors are very strong. Mist makes landscapes somehow mysterious, because we do not know about what it hides. Thank You.

    • Yes, mist stimulates the imagination, especially in autumn when the mind is expecting nice things behind the mist.

  16. A road that winds into the fog begs the viewer to see where it goes, all the time walking through a palette of soft colours. Lovely.

    • It’s nice to enjoy the fall colors and the mist now. Soon there will be blowing snow and ice on that road and many of the trees will be bare.

  17. The moody mist gives adds a sense of mystery to autumn. Thanks for sharing! I have a poetry blog here on WordPress and today’s poem is about autumn in case you have time to look? Sunny greetings, Sam 🙂

  18. As always…glorious Montana! It is still 80 degrees in San Antonio. I don’t think there is an “autumn.” At least I don’t see one!

    • Our Autumn might be a brief one now that snow is in the immediate forecast, but I hope the snow will be temporary and the winter will arrive later.

    • I think you are getting the most snow. Here we are just on the edge of the storm front. I bet it will be very pretty up there soon!
